ZAMBIANS must seriously reflect on whether the Patriotic Front Government has lived up to their expectations as promised in 2011 for it to be given chance to complete its term of office in this month’s elections, MMD acting national secretary Mwansa Mbulakulima has said.
Mr. Mbulakulima said the promises the PF made to the people of Zambia which they have failed to fulfil should be the main determinants for re-election to office of President.
He said this during an in-house meeting in Mazabuka ahead of party president Nevers Mumba’s visit scheduled for next week.
Mr. Mbulakulima told party sympathisers and officials that the PF was a failed project and now a sinking Titanic and that out of the many promises they made none had been fulfilled.
Mr. Mbulakulima said the PF was being haunted by its 90 days promise as it had to explain the basis for its re-election to the people.
He said the failure to reduce mealie meal and fuel prices and uplifting general standard of living was enough reason to change Government.
Mr. Mbulakulima, who was accompanied by acting deputy treasurer Winnie Zaloumis, director for communications in the office of the president, Raphael Nakachinda and Bowman Lusambo, said the only party which had the capacity to change the lives of the people of Zambia was the MMD.
He said the people of Mazabuka should gauge the PF on whether it had delivered the Constitution, paid farmers for the maize they supplied to FRA and whether cheap farming inputs have been distributed on time.
Mr Mbulakulima said Zambians should answer the question whether the PF has created jobs and whether the party had respected the rule of law.
And Ms Zaloumis refuted claims that the MMD was in an alliance with the UPND.
She said MPs supporting UPND president Hakainde Hichilema were doing it at their own will and had no blessings from the party.
